Iowa Sales Tax On Gold And Silver Bullion And Coins

The State of Iowa requires the collection of sales taxes on certain products sold by BullionMax and delivered to an Iowa address. These taxes must be collected on (1) any bullion products made of copper; (2) any coins that currently are not, or were not previously, used as legal tender; (3) accessory items; and (4) processed items.

The following definitions apply to products on which taxes must be collected in Iowa:

  • Bullion. Bars, ingots, or commemorative medallions of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, or a combination of these where the value of the metal depends on its content and not its form.
  • Coins. A coin made of gold, silver, or other metal which is or has been used as legal tender.
  • Accessory Items. Items such as holders, tubes, coin flips, and apparel.
  • Processed Items. Precious metals that have been processed by third parties into items that are valued on more than their precious metal content, such as statues or colorized coins.

Sales taxes in Iowa are calculated at checkout on the BullionMax website based on (1) the taxability of products sold by BullionMax in Iowa set forth above, and (2) the specific tax rates established by the taxing jurisdiction of the delivery address in Iowa. Our sales tax license number in Iowa is 100000434.
